Contemporary Octavia Wallpaper by deathaura40s Contemporary Octavia Wallpaper by deathaura40s
Decided to make a proper wallpaper of Octavia. The most difficult part of making it was resisting the temptation to punch my monitor after Sketchbook crashed for the fourth time.

As an electric double bassist, I approve of her instrument here.

Original Octavia vector by :icondiskein:

Recoloured in GIMP, wallpaper done in Autodesk Sketchbook Pro

Could you make a 1920x1080 version of this? It's really well done!

I have the Yamaha SVC-210SK Silent Cello. It really doesn't sound that much different from an acoustic cello, until you turn on some of the amp effects; it can get pretty crazy then. ;)

people don't really get that cellos need that wood base too make there beautiful sound, do they, but still nice drawing. I love that purple background, and her serious complexion.

Hmmm, I find that electric bowed strings with proper amplification can sound pretty amazing. I play a Yamaha SV-120 which has the same form as the cello Octavia is playing here (a Yamaha SVC-110) and it sounds great. My Stagg electric double bass sounds even better; the reason is probably due to the amount of solid maple in it which gives it a nice warm tone. I can't comment on the cello, having not played it, but knowing Yamaha it probably does actually sound pretty nice :)

I thought about it being electric but then it would need the magnets and chord. I guess i was just being picky. Its art.
